I have 8 week...

I have 8 week old german shepherd and i noticed a dry scab looking thing behind his front left leg. just wanted to know if this could be anything serious or managable at home.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the dog's name?

Rhis name is ***** *******

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Ralo?

Nope, just that hes still a pup and i just wanted to know if the scab looking thing was anything to worry about.

Okay

Nothing to worry about

That is a healing spot of infection

Just leave it alone and do not put any more olive oil on it

I hope that helps!
